330ml bottle, still with the creepy Dio de Los Muertos imagery, and without much information on the beer herein beyond the name.
This beer pours a hazy, medium golden amber colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, loosely foamy, and weakly bubbly ecru head, which leaves some random landfall lace around the glass as it readily subsides.
It smells of mildly acrid yeast, musty banana chips, bready pale and spicy wheat malt, a further strangely sinful (not in the pleasant way) corn grist astringency, faint and duly muddled savoury spice, and perhaps the suggestion of rubber-booted citrus. The taste is more grainy and semi-sweet wheat malt, a tag-a-long sugary corn character, overripe applesauce, pureed bruised bananas, ethereal clove/coriander spice, a certain hole where I was expecting some corollary table pepper, and a bit of dank wet cardboard.
The bubbles are pretty low-key, and hardly even noticeable at times, the body a decent medium weight, and smooth, I suppose, with a growing clamminess as it warms. It finishes on the sweet side, the various perceived malts employed here running the table, as it were.
While not particularly egregious in its flaws, they are indeed there for all (ok, maybe not all) to see, smell, and taste. Way too sugary (at times from dubious sources), and with a yeastiness that seems to come and go at will - control, people! Anyways, closer to the purported base style than the others from this brewing concern that I've yet tried, which is faint praise, I'm afraid.

Bottle at a Mexican restaurant in Denver, the name of which I cannot remember. Pours hazy yellow as expected with a fluffy white head. Aroma of clove and banana, sweet wheaty malts, honey, maybe some pear. Flavor follows as expected with nice banana and clove notes, honey sweetness, and a relatively clean finish. Body is light with medium plus carbonation. Very easy drinking. Not bad.
